Play with Style


I have a card to share using a new Dreamerland Crafts stamp called Play a Love Song.
I think she is so sweet!!!

The background was created by blending Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides.

I wanted a musical background but I don't have a stencil like that so I created my own using a die instead.  I cut a few of the MFT Music Notes dies from a Masking Magic sheet which created my own sticky but repositionable stencil :)  I then applied mermaid lagoon Distress Oxide lightly over the top 2/3rds of the card.

I paired her with a Dreamerland Crafts sentiment from the Birthday 06 set.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed just the "style" with white embossing powder.

I used some watered down white Gesso to flick dots over the card.

The girl is coloured with copics but I used a silver glitter gel pen to colour her flute.

I fussy cut her out and attached her with foam adhesive for some dimension.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Happy Hippos Yay


I have a cute birthday card to share today.

As soon as I saw the current MFT colour challenge I just knew I wanted to give it a try with one of my favourite MFT stamp sets,  Happy Hippos.

This trio is adorable and I think almost everyone would love a card featuring them.

I coloured everything with Copics and fussy cut them out.

I adhered them to a scalloped circle die cut and stamped the sentiment which is from the MFT set Birthday Chicks.  I really love this sentiment and it worked out perfectly for this card.

I decided to make it a slimline card and I created the background by using Distress Oxide Inks through a Tim Holtz Gradient Circle stencil.  I was lucky enough to be given this stencil as a Christmas present and it's the first time I've used it.  I LOVE how it turned out!!!  I used Twisted Citron all over the stencil first and then put some Cracked Pistachio over the top of some of those circles also to create a totally new colour (similar to what was needed for the colour challenge).

Copics used :

W 00, 1, 3, 5

Y 000, 13, 15

R 30

BV 000, 00, 02, 04
